The River Run/Walk 5K is an annual event sponsored by the Friends of Strong Memorial Hospital and the hospital’s transplant units. All proceeds directly benefit transplant patients.
Transplant recipients who come to Strong for heart, liver, pancreas, or kidney transplant often need financial assistance while they await surgery and afterwards. In addition to costly medical treatment, the need to travel – for some a great distance – adds financial strain on patients and their families. Your support will help the hundreds of patients currently awaiting transplants, as well as those who continue to receive follow-up care from Strong.
